Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and which will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Inside the pop-up which will show up, you'll see drop-down menus for all four sorts of errors and for each of them you could pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. In case you select the third option, you should just input the URL to the file that you have uploaded then save the change. One other way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of program code in it.
